you can't sleep here!!

Pennypickle's Workshop is so much fun, sometimes kids (and their parents) never want to leave! Since the Professor's house is pretty big (but not THAT big), he decided that the best way for everyone to enjoy his crazy hands-on gadgets is to break up the day into sessions.

You do not need to register in advance to come to a session, unless you are booking a field trip or a birthday party.

However, you may want to pre-register for special events, as space is limited. In many cases you can purchase special event tickets in advance on the Events page.

(You can get information about group visits or field trips here...)
